Osaki vs Kahuna: The Battle of the Gods

Welcome to our review – of Osaki vs Kahuna: The Battle of the Gods. In every industry, there are always two equally opposing forces clashing in the competitive nature of business.

In the computer world, it’s Apple vs Microsoft. We’ve seen these two buttheads time after time.

In the massage world, it’s Osaki vs Kahuna. These two guys have both made their mark in the massage chair market.

We’ve researched hundreds of chairs from each brand. We’ve even interviewed and worked with some of their staff.

Today, we’ll compare these two brands side by side. We’ll give you a curated list of the best massage chairs between the both of them.

Let’s get started.

Our Number One Osaki Massage Chair Pick: Osaki 3D Pro Cyber

Osaki 3D Pro Cyber Massage Chair

 

 

L-track is the talk of the town and the Pro Cyber has it. It also provides 2 stages of zero gravity. During this state, your legs will rise above your heart, decompressing your spine and increasing blood circulation.

The 3D rollers provide the capability to extend out from the chair, giving a deep tissue massage. The users can control the extension up to 8 cm using an intuitive remote control.

The tablet control interface is intuitive and provides 6 different massage techniques and 9 different automatic programs to choose from.

Our Number One Kahuna Massage Chair Pick: Kahuna LM 6800

Kahuna LM 6800 Massage Chair

The Kahuna LM 6800 is one of the highest ratings for a massage chair on Amazon.

It’s packed with great features like zero gravity, Space saving technology, a fully elongated L-track, computerized body scan, advanced air cell technology, and more.

My favorite part about this chair is that it’s designed to mimic the motion of a human hand.

It’s cool and almost freaky that it’s able to accomplish it so well. It uses a complex 4 roller system to accomplish this.

There are 3 stages of zero gravity and health benefits associated with it like increased blood circulation and decompressing the spine.

The LM 6800 is ahead of the air massage technology. They offer the most minimal amount of airbags without losing surface coverage. The squeeze massage these things provide is refreshing!

Another thing we liked is that Kahuna added 2 years warranty since 11/22/19. That means 3 years for parts and labor, 4 years for parts, and 5 years for the structural frame.

Kahuna doesn’t just make a model and leave it be, they will constantly add more features and update it.

Osaki and Kahuna: Who are they and what do they stand for?

Through our years of analyzing massage chairs, we’ve noticed that companies that dominate the market are those that have a long-term goal. Some would even say it’s a mission.

Osaki

Osaki falls under two brands. OTA World LLC and Titan World LLC. They do business as Osaki and Titan.

If you’re browsing through Amazon and find a chair that belongs to Titan, know that it’s Osaki rebranded.

They are one of the leading distributors of massage chairs.

They have other products such as handheld massagers, fitness machines, foot massagers, and back relief products.

Osaki massage chairs

Osaki’s number one goal is to help customers relax.

They recognized that life is stressful and that sometimes one needs to take a break.

For them, the break comes in a form of a beautiful leather relaxing chair.

Osaki is very prolific.

They have more than 70 models of massage chairs.

Many of their massage chairs seem to have similar features so make sure to read our analysis below to get the best bang for your buck.

Kahuna

Kahuna is the number one Amazon seller of massage chairs.

They have the most reviews and the highest ratings for their products on Amazon.

They are not as prolific as Osaki but have more flagship products that are memorable. They’ve been doing business since 1997.

Kahuna’s official business name is AJX LLC. They stand for digitality (A word they kind of made up) and pragmatism.

Their chairs are indeed practical and they do have quite a presence online.

Their focus is on the people. And it shows. They are quick to update their products based on customer feedback. 

Kahuna customer service is next level. Kahuna is constantly updating their products on the Amazon description page – Kahuna LM 6800

We called their support line several times and a pleasant gentleman talked to us and helped us find the perfect chair.

He could tell you the difference between different models and such. Good companies will always hire good support staff and not outsource it to third-world countries.

Also, it’s reassuring that many celebrities endorse Kahuna.

One person stood out in particular to me: Neil Patrick Harris.

Best Kahuna Massage Chairs

Kahuna Hubot HM-078

Kahuna Hubot HM-078 massage chair

 

kahuna hubot massage chair review

We’ve seen massage chairs that have 40, 50, and even 60 airbags. This chair has… 107 airbags.

Like synchronized swimmers, these airbags work in unison to provide compression massage.

The Hubot HM-078 has an HSL track, which stands for Hyper SL track.

This track differs from regular S tracks in that it curves throughout the track and naturally follows the curvature of the spine.

Some cheaper models out there only curve the neck and hip portion of the track.

Full-body automatic scanning ensures that people of all shapes and sizes can adequately use this massage chair in the most optimal operation. It can fit up to 6.2 feet and 250 lbs.

One thing we liked is that the air cells move in a rhythmic pattern.

It’s designed to promote blood circulation and increase oxygen levels.

kahuna hubot massage chair

The Hubot is one of the few massage chairs that incorporate a head massage.

There is a semi-circle-shaped headrest and two mini airbags that deliver this head massage.

The heat therapy is in both the shoulders area and the lumbar area.

The entire chair pretty much heats up and it’s one of the few chairs on the market that goes to that length.

In total, there are 15 automatic programs in this model.

It’s comprehensive and covers a wide variety of massage techniques and airbag rhythms.

Kahuna LM 6800S

Kahuna LM 6800S massage chair

The LM 6800 was a huge hit, it’s one of Kahuna’s flagship products. And it’s one of the more affordable chairs in Kahuna’s product line.

It was very popular with the customers so much so that Kahuna decided to deliver a 2nd version of it called the 6800S.

The 6800S has more features and customization for a couple of hundred dollars which is well worth it.

In all, there are 12 new auto programs to enjoy. These fall into 3 categories: Basic, Elite, and Stretch.

It’s great that a third of these programs is stretch, which is the most effective automatic program that many customers (including me) love.

It’s a full-body massage chair with 3 zero gravity positions. The zero-g is considered true zero gravity, as it’s able to raise your feet above the heart.

One thing I liked is that the pillow can be folded and unfolded.

This makes it possible to control the strength of the massage in the head/neck region without using a towel.

The automatic computerized body scan is great for receiving a customized massage.

However, it’s not as accurate as Hubot. Periodically the rollers may go past your head by a couple of inches.

Another thing I liked is how hard it massages. The airbags and the rollers do a fantastic job of providing a strong massage.

Even customers with big stature need to lower the intensity.

Kahuna SM 7300S

Kahuna SM 7300S massage chair

 

 

 

The SM 7300s is for big users and individuals who enjoy a strong massage. It’s got an elongated SL track and a stronger bigger roller mechanism.

It features an SL track+, meaning the track is longer than their other models. It also has 6 rollers instead of 4. Customers have said the difference between 6 and 4 “makes a world of a difference.”

This chair can accommodate an astounding 5 feet to 6 feet 5 inches.

It’s relieving that it can fit American-sized users.

This chair can accommodate an astounding 5 feet to 6 feet 5 inches.

It’s relieving that it can fit American-sized users.

The foot massager compared to the 6800 is much more effective.

It comes with 3 different massage techniques at once: scraping, rolling, and kneading.

The airbags in the foot area apply a good amount of pressure so that the rollers will touch the arch of the foot.

Much like most other models, the 7300S incorporates space-saving technology. It’s especially nice for those with tighter living quarters.

The one other big difference is that this model has triple hip airbags. This means a stronger massage around the waist/hip area.

Also, it has Bluetooth / app connectivity for those who like to use their smartphones for everything.

Best Osaki Massage Chairs

Osaki rebranded itself as Titan Massage Chairs so don’t be alarmed when you see a Titan chair make our list of the best Osaki massage chairs.

Titan Chair Apex

Titan Chair Apex Massage Chair Review

The Titan Apex is an L-track chair that goes out of its way to comfort your daily needs. It features a reflexology-specific foot roller and the ability to build custom massages.

It’s one of the cheaper L-track massage chairs, but it has just the right amount of features to be worth it.

I’m pretty tight beneath my hip and the L-track was especially helpful in this chair.

This is the first chair we’ve seen where they have a name designated for the foot rollers.

They call it the AP-Pomp. It’s strong and effective; it’s able to hit the arch of your foot which some chairs are notorious for not able to do.

Zero gravity is great for those who want to evenly distribute the weight of their body. It’s a refreshing feeling and helps with blood circulation.

It has 4 automatic programs and 6 different massage techniques. I always like to mix and match programs and techniques to try to switch them up.

One thing I like is that it’s designed to save space. Especially for someone who lives in a small studio in the heart of Chicago, this is great news!

The computerized body scan is great for those who want a custom-tailored massage, no matter their shape or size.

Osaki OS-7200H Pinnacle Massage Chair

Osaki OS-7200H Pinnacle Massage Chair Review

The Osaki Os-7200H is a luxury full-body massage chair with all the bells and whistles of a high-end chair.

It has a computerized body scan, automatic leg scan, massive air bag system, chrome therapy, and much more.

 

Remember that the OS-7200H Pinnacle is different from OS-7200 (yeah we were also confused!).

The body scan is great for guests and families because it accommodates all body shapes and sizes.

The Automatic leg scan is great, especially for those who have experienced having to apply pressure because the leg extension was made with a cheap string action mechanic.

A great feature of this chair is the quad rollers that mimic human hands. This type of roller design produces the most effective massages. We’ve reviewed ones with 6 rollers from Kahuna that felt especially soothing.

51 airbags work together to provide air compression massage. It’s very strong and complements the overall massage very well.
